Menomena: Kill 'Em All With Kindness (Chicago, IL)


DAY TWELVE and THIRTEEN: ONWARD TO CHICAGO!

There isn't much to report on the northeast trek to the Windy City. Our goal was to make it to Springfield, Illinois for the first night away from Dallas, and we fulfilled this mission at 2am Tuesday morning. On the way, we stopped at a nice little din...   More

Menomena: Snorting Coke Off the Platinum Record (Austin to Dallas, TX)


DAY ELEVEN: DALLAS! As in, NO MORE SXSW! FINALLY!

All in all, the people of Austin were very kind and welcoming. There was the overnight desk clerk at the Best Western, who offered us bagels and Mylanta out of his own personal stash, the taxi cabbie and his KFC-eating girlfriend who seemed genuinel...   More

Menomena: Return of the Mustache (Austin, TX)


DAY TEN: AUSTIN! SXSW!

And then there was one more day. It was Saturday, and it was warm, sunny, and clear. I was happy that I had called it quits rather early the night before, because I was able to do laundry AND get more than four hours of sleep, both major luxuries on this tour.

Menomena: It Only Left Me Feeling Old and Obsolete (Austin, TX)


DAY NINE: AUSTIN! SXSW!

It was Friday at South By, and the crazy masses were becoming more and more crazy. Imagine being trapped at a supersized Saturday Market in Portland with hotter temperatures and (unbelievably) MORE shirtless white people with dreadlocks. And more panhandlers…and more s...   More

Menomena: We Lip-Synched Flawlessly (Austin, TX)


DAY EIGHT: AUSTIN! SXSW! The next day was Thursday, the day of the Barsuk Label Showcase at a venue called Buffalo Billiards. But first, we had some friends to meet: 31Knots! Man, I truly love those guys. There's something about seeing familiar faces in a sea of strangers that makes you forget all the questio...   More

Menomena: The Beginning of Our Golden Era (SXSW in Austin, TX)


DAY SEVEN: AUSTIN! SXSW!

Holy crap, we made it to Austin! Finally! Our destiny is about to be fulfilled! Millions of products will be endorsed! Many checks, contracts, and breasts will be signed! Many new fans will adore us! I can't even fathom it all. It was 11pm when we saw our first "Keep Au...   More

Menomena: A Perfectly Sculpted Handlebar Mustache (Phoenix, AZ to Austin, TX)


DAY FOUR, FIVE, and SIX: PHOENIX TO AUSTIN!
Man, I've been such a terrible resident of the blog-o-sphere lately. I think we're actually on day 10 or 11 of the tour, as I sit here typing in our luxurious Best Western suite on a questionably stained bedspread. The last four days have been a solid blast of...   More

Menomena: Diarrhea, Cha Cha Cha! (Phoenix, AZ)


DAY THREE: PHOENIX!

Playing concerts for a (fake) living is hard enough (fake) work without a perpetual case of pre-show (very real) nervousness. Some of my peers (i.e. Kevin O'Connor, Bono) dull this jittery anticipation with alcohol and/or marijuana. I'm still getting there. Alcohol only makes me...   More

Menomena: Pimping Our Ride/Gresham Represent! (S.F./Los Angeles, CA)


[EDITOR'S NOTE: We are very excited to have Menomena doing a tour diary, as Friend And Foe is one of our favorite albums, pretty much ever. This entry was written by Danny Seim.]

DAY ONE: SAN FRANCISCO!

But first, a backstory:

After joining the esteemed ranks of Tourin...   More
